For the second time in three rounds Lance Franklin was kept goalless by Hawthorn at the weekend. Franklin will look to bounce back against a Carlton side dealing with the aftermath of the midweek sacking of coach Mick Malthouse.
The Swans’ form in 2015 is built around an improved defence. Only ladder leaders Fremantle have conceded fewer points this year, although the Swans have scored the fewest of any team currently inside the top eight.
If Carlton are to secure a much needed win it will have to be achieved without two key players after Chris Judd and Bryce Gibbs were ruled out through injury.
